representative (administrator or executor) of an estate can sue in any court for property taken from the decedent. A
summary procedure is also provided for in a supplemental proceeding before the same probate court handling the estate.
The representative can file a petition for a citation either to discover property or to recover it.
The court orders the citation to issue commanding the person to whom it is directed to appear and respond and the citation is served on the respondent by the Sheriff just like any other lawsuit. Any interested party can also bring a citation against the representative.
